Outbreak of Generosity
In light of the current situation caused by the outbreak of COVID-19, ESU joints the Outbreak of Generosity campaign.
One of the suggested measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19 is social distancing – minimising contact with others in the community. Starting a period of self-quarantine is an option for some, whereas for others it has become enforced. The reality is, this can place many members of our community in distress. Leaving them feeling lonely, helpless and isolated.
The aims of the campaign are:
- Mobilising and inspiring youth across Europe to invest in their own communities and providing support to vulnerable people.
- Elderly individuals who may be cautious or wary of going out.
- Individuals with weak immune systems or severe health concerns.
- Individuals who live far from home.
- Honouring all the hard-working personnel who are dealing courageously with the situation of COVID-19, whether it be doctors, nurses, retailers, etc.
ESU acts as a partner in this campaign that was launched along with other young volunteers on the 16th of March 2020 with the support of the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations (FEMYSO).
Outbreak of Generosity is an inclusive campaign that does not regard religion nor the origins of its members and volunteers, as they aim to inspire every young person to take action.
